About the Book:

This book is mainly a collection of papers presented in a 2-day National seminar on ‚??Ethnicity and the Regional Politics on Eastern and North East India‚??, sponsored by UGC, New Delhi and organized in the Department of History (P.G.), ABN Seal College (Govt.), Coochbehar, West Bengal in December, 2010. A few more important papers have been included from different fields which are equally relevant. A large number of ethnic groups are living in this region; we do not have much idea about the people living there, their ethnic identity, economic and social conditions, languages etc. Though, we have heard the movements like-Gorkha Land, Kamtapur, Greater Cooch Behar, Boroland, Adibasi in Tripura, Kuki and so on. The relevant papers have highlighted all these issues critically with sources and genesis of the movements and questions of ethnic identity. The papers are historically elaborated to search the salvation process of these burning issues.
